Why should you volunteer?

When I first started high school I viewed volunteering simply as a requirement I needed to fulfill in order to graduate. After taking a career class this year my teacher taught me just how important volunteering can be. For instance, have you ever been stumped as to how to get a first job that requires experience if you can’t get it in the first place?

Volunteering is the answer. Volunteering can provide you with infinite experience for any career you may be interested and all you have to give if your time. People are very impressed when they look at your resume and see you have already done a lot of volunteering pertaining to the job you’re applying to. On top of it helping you to get a job, volunteering provides you with the overall satisfaction of helping out your community. So volunteer! You’ll gain experience, expand on your resume and benefit your community all at once!
